Jury Sentences Danny Hembree to Death

Today, a Gaston County jury sentences Danny Hembree to death for killing a teenager.

Hembree was on a crack binge during the incident and had a long history of childhood physical and sexual abuse. His attorney argued that these facts mitigated the case in favor of a life sentence, but the jury was unswayed.

Mr. Hembree will be transferred to death row at Central Prison.
